Medications Can Be Dangerously Flawed
When you buy a product, you expect it to work as advertised. The last thing you want is to be hurt as a result of how the product was designed or made. Unfortunately, drugs and medications are occasionally defective and cause problems rather than curing them.
If you or someone you love has been hurt because a drug was defective, you may have a claim for damages. The process of product design, manufacturing and distribution is a complicated area. Dominguez Law has years of experience in these types of cases and will utilize our familiarity with the latest technology to assert your rights.
When Is The Company At Fault?
Like most states, New Mexico holds companies to a very high standard in order to protect the consumers who use their goods. A manufacturer or distributor can be held accountable for harm caused by a product that poses an unreasonable risk of injury, regardless of how much care was actually taken in making the device and putting it on the market.
A consumer does not need to prove negligence, as in a typical personal injury claim, to recover damages. Instead, he or she must show that the product carries a risk that a reasonable person would find unacceptable. The product’s company may be liable not only if the product is flawed and injures you, but also if it failed to provide a proper warning of any risks associated with it.
